Whisper it quietly, but Christmas is coming. And that means Premier League football – an avalanche of Premier League football.
Broadcasters are working to make their selections for the big festive period, which will see 30 Premier League games take place across a 15-day period.
Last Christmas saw every single game beamed live across the nation due to COVID-19 restrictions and the Premier League’s response to stagger the matches out across unique time-slots. That is unlikely to be the case this time around but fear not, there’s still plenty of drama to be shown on TV.
A mouth-watering 29 Premier League games were televised in just 13 days over the 2019 Christmas period, including two rounds of Amazon Prime Video football fixtures. Amazon have once again picked up two rounds of fixtures towards the end of the year, but their first slate of games is at the start of December rather than on Boxing Day.
Sky Sports and BT Sport will announce their plans in the coming weeks, though fans will be desperate for a return to stands across the 2021 winter months after missing out on Christmas football in person last year.
RadioTimes.com has rounded up the full list of Premier League Christmas fixtures during 2021/22.
